In 2015, the CDC reported that around 3.4 million people in the U.S. had active epilepsy, making up 1.2% of the United States population.

There is currently no cure for epilepsy, along with many other chronic diseases. To honor Benoit Migambi, who passed away from epilepsy, this scholarship seeks to inspire the next generation of students studying neurological and chronic diseases. Graduate students studying chronic and neurological diseases are eligible to apply. 

In your application essay, explain why you chose this course of study.
